Ryan and Wendy arrived last night and once they'd seen their mum became their normal lively selves. They stayed at ours last night and we've been to visit Deanna this morning. She was sitting up having speech therapy this morning and seemed so much brighter. She had a heart scan and it showed that her heart is perfect with nothing wrong, which is excellent, but which still doesn't explain why she had the stroke. They are still considering that she has vasculitis.
Anyway, she looked so bright this morning and was really pleased to see the children and tried to say 'Ryan' which was fantastic. And the children were very happy to chat away with her. I was only there for a couple of hours as Rick is doing his stint at the moment and she was having lots of tests/scans/treatment and didn't want to get in the way. I'll take the kids back later as they and Rick are going back to Bahrain and then the kids onto the States. Monique is staying this afternoon and tonight and I'll be back in in the morning, so we'll update you accordingly. But the change in her in a day is great. And she is now allowed to eat and drink which is also great progress. Kind regards to you all - Danielle x
